Stars urged to use home advantage



Kenya’s Harambee Stars have been urged to capitalise on home advantage when they lock horns with the Swallows of Burundi in Sunday’s return leg of the African Nations Championship (CHAN) qualifier at the Nyayo National Stadium.

Burundi will go into the match with an upper hand following their 1-0 victory in Bujumbura’s Port Louis Stadium a fortnight ago, but being the hosts, Stars have been advised to make good use of their home support.

According to the Kenya Football Coaches Association (KEFOCA) chairman Gilbert Selebwa, the James Nandwa trained side are technically superior – hence they should dictate the pace of the game.

“Nandwa and his boys should know that no one comes into your house and run the affairs,” he said.

“Harambee Stars must dictate the pace from onset by not allowing the technically inferior Burundian’s time and space to control the proceedings. But for Kenya to win this match, they must bear three things in mind; strong defence, creative midfield and an aggressive striking force.”

“We have a strong team and I am confident they will make us proud. On behalf of KEFOCA, I would like to wish them all the best.”

The winner between Kenya and Burundi on aggregate will take on Sudan in the next round of the competition.
